I think you may have misunderstood the recommendation from this bug. This is
essentially a no-change for normative specification and i agree 100% with your
first statement.

UA's are free to define locale-specific UIs so there is nothing to punt on to
HTML.next

This is only an awareness issue which is why a specific example is recommended,
but not even necessary. I was going to suggest that this be discussed at TPAC
to highlight that browser vendors for other regions can use this to provide
regional-specific browsers. There is no requirement for any browser to
implement anything unless they are providing universal or region-specific
browsers. The over-the-wire encoding is always ISO 8601.
